|He says she is missing one or two key symptoms. We have an appointment with a new Orthopedic doctor on the 25th. I'm hoping they may have an answer for us. The only 2 tests that I can think of that they haven't done yet are EMG and Angiogram. They have done everything else that I know of. I'm gonna ask this new Orthopedic doctor about compartment syndrome too. How do they test for that?
|They did test her for that then the first time it happened, but they didn't have her on a treadmill first. Would that make a difference? They were trying to keep her off of it at that point because of the blood pressure medicine they had given her in the IV. Any other ideas? Or should I get them to re-test her for this one?
I appreciate your help on this!!!!
The running would increase the pressure in the calf. That would simulate the feeling of swelling she feels. Have you taken her in when it is acutely swollen? Also have they checked her heart? Is she a diabetic?
